The Group F in the ongoing Euro 2020 has been dubbed the “Group of Death”. That’s because the teams in this group (asides Hungary) are among international football’s biggest. The group includes Germany (4 time World Cup champions), France (World Cup holders), and Portugal (European reigning Champions). France (2nd) and Portugal (5th) are in the Top 10 of the FIFA World Rankings. Only the best will survive this group.
Ever since losing the Euro 2016 final, France have been nearly unbeatable. They breezed through Euros qualification, then finished first in their UEFA Nations League group. A group that included Sweden, Croatia, and Portugal.
France have possible the best team at this year’s competition with amazing depth at every position. As if having Griezmann, Mbappe and Giroud were not enough in attack, Karim Benzema is back as well. Benzema was recalled to the team after a 7 year absence and is coming in after a 30-goal season with Real Madrid. They also have the formidable midfield duo of Pogba and N’golo Kante who was in very good form for Chelsea. France will be looking to make amends for their painful loss in the 2016 final.
France are in great form ahead of their first match against struggling Germany and are priced at a huge 2.80 odds to win. Click here to bet on France vs Germany on nairabet.com.
Germany have performed below expectations in recent times. Going into the last World Cup as defending champions, they exited at the group stage. Their most recent slump was a shock 1-2 loss at home to North Macedonia. Usually renowned for their strong defence, Germany have only kept only two clean sheets in 11 games.
The recall of Thomas Muller and Mats Hummels might however prove a masterstroke and lift their spirits. Timo Werner and Kai Havertz could also bring along a winning feeling having just won the Champions League with Chelsea. This will be Joachim Löw’s last tournament as Germany head coach and he’ll be keen to add the Euros to the World Cup he won.
Germany boast of stars like Muller, Kroos, Kimmich, Havertz and others. Click here to bet on Germany to score 2 or more goals tonight.
For the first time in their history, Portugal are entering a tournament as defending Champions. They are the absolute Champions of Europe, holding both the UEFA Euros and Nations League trophies. Portugal are entering another golden era as they have fantastic players all over the park. They will be led by talismanic captain, Cristiano Ronaldo who has the joint-most goals in Euros history. Ronaldo will be highly motivated to become the player with the most goals in the Euros and most international goals in history. Bruno Fernandes is also coming off another prolific season with Manchester United. Portugal can be considered one of the favourites for Euro 2020.
Cristiano Ronaldo needs 1 goal to become the highest goalscorer in Euros history. Click here to bet on Ronaldo to score in their first game at 1.91 odds.
To be honest, Hungary look like the weakest in this group. They are ranked far below their fellow group members but they should not be overlooked. Hungry are in good form and have kept 2 clean sheets in 4 games while scoring 11 goals. They are also one of the tournament hosts and will enjoy home advantage in 2 of their group stage matches. Still, it is difficult to see Hungary advance from the group of death but in football, never say never.
Hungary have goals in them and have scored 11 goals in their last 4 games. Click here to bet on Hungary to score at least 1 goal in their opening game at 1.92 odds.
